207 SQUADRON ROYAL AIR FORCE HISTORY

Joyce Brotherton's grave - directions

Joyce is buried in the very large Bishop Auckland Cemetery. If you are not too far away and are ex-207 or have a connection with the Squadron, it would be nice to think that someone might place some flowers on her grave and keep it tidy from time to time, especially on Remembrance Sunday.

Joyce's grave is in Section 15 - see sketch map below - near the eastern boundary of the cemetery in, it would appear, Row 31, the ones alongside being Przybyl and Newton.

Row 37 would seem to be at a boundary.

If you are a member of Joyce's family or knew her in any way, please contact Frank Haslam, the website editor.
